Aviva, Hebrew word for springtime, is a lacy spring cardigan. The elegant lacy body is accentuated by German rib collars and hems. Aran weight yarn combined with a simple 2row repeat of lace pattern makes this cardigan a quick knit.
Aviva has a very different construction. The back is knitted up and the neck stitches are bound off. The two fronts are knitted separately and then seamed to the back. Collar is knib by picking up stitches along the fronts and the neck.
11 sts and 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Vertical Lace Trellis stitch pattern, post blocking.
14 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
Gauge in stockinette is listed for reference only. It is critical to get gauge in lace pattern. Take time to check your gauge in lace pattern.
I am a programmer by day and a knitting designer by night. Even though the sweater days are so few in Bangalore, I still knit and design knitwear with the hope of living in a colder city sometime.
